My ankle problems

I have been resting my ankle now for over a month. The doctor had said no running for at least a month on January 13th, which meant by next week I thought I was going to be good to go. Well not so fast. On January 25th I went on an old crappy stationary bike at the YMCA. Tried to mimic a spin class where you go fast & slow and played with the tension. When I was going fast and then slowing down the peddles would get stuck and jolt my ankles. Since then I have had major ankle pain, not just pins & needles. I haven't done any cardio, nothing in almost 2 weeks now.

Results of MRI

I finally got my results from the doctor today.  I have a bulged disc in my lower back. The nurse is sending the results to my physiotherapist and I hope to start treatment with her next week, since she's on holiday this week.

Interesting that my lower back has been bothering me for the last few days. Even had a pinched nerve in my upper back yesterday morning. That was not pleasant.

Physiotherapist report

I saw the physiotherapist yesterday. She had read my MRI results and did some more reflex testing on me. She noticed some differences between my right and left. She also said that since the MRI only showed a slight bulging disc, nothing that would affect my ankle she is going to recommend that I go back to the doctor for some neurology testing. There wasn't much more she could do. She was going to write a note to the doctor and let her know the progress I had made.
